Swansea Bay University Health Board reserve the right to close vacancies after 24 hours if a large number of suitable applications are received. We encourage early applications to ensure consideration for a post.

Applications are invited from graduates (or students who are about to graduate) with an accredited IBMS degree in Biomedical Science or students who are about to graduate from a healthcare science practitioner training programme (PTP) degree.

We offer a wide range of development opportunites and CPD activities, and are currently supporting a number of staff through MSc courses.

The department is fully UKAS accredited under ISO 15189 standards and is well equipped with state of the art equipment.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an enthusiastic and committed team and help us to continue to develop and strive to provide the highest quality service to our patients.
